At least, my dear --
Small hands, relinquish all --
Ragged island --
To whom the house of Montagu was neighbour --
This is mine, and I can hold it --
Of what importance, o my lovely girls, my dancers --
Few come this way --
The strawberry shrub --
When it is over --
The courage that my mother had --
Wild-cat, gnat and I --
This should be simple; if one's power were great --
Song --
New England spring, 1942 --
Her in a rocky cup --
How innocent we lie --
Armenoville --
Put it down! I say --
I still can see --
There were herbs strown --
Heavily on the faithful bulk of Kurvenal --
Dream of Saba --
Who hurt you so --
When the tree-sparrows with no sound --
Amorphous is the mind --
For warmth alone, for shelter only --
The agnostic --
The apple-trees bud, but I do not --
Black hair you'd day she had --
Cave canem --
An ancient gesture --
Jesus to His disciples --
Establishment is shocked --
Some things are dark --
If it should rain --
The Parsi woman --
Journal --
The sea at sunset can reflect --
I, in disgust with the living --
How did I bear it --
Men working --
Steepletop --
Even you, sweet Basil --
Nothing could stand all this rain --
Borage, forage for bees --
The gardener in haying time --
Sky-coloured bird --
To a snake --
I woke in the night and heard the wind --
Look how the bittersweet --
Truck-garden market-day --
Intense and terrible, I think, must be the loneliness --
Sometimes, oh, often, indeed --
Not for a nation --
Thou art not lovelier than lilacs, no --
Time does not bring relief, you all have lied --
Mindful of you the sodden earth in spring --
Not in this chamber only at my birth --
If I should learn, in some quite casual way --
This door you might not open, and you did --
I do but ask that you be always fair --
Love, though for this you riddle me with darts --
I think I should have loved you presently --
Oh, think not I am faithful to a vow --
I shall forget you presently, my dear --
We talk of taxes, and I call you friend --
Into the golden vessel of great song --
Not with libations, but with shouts and laughter --
Only until this cigarette is ended --
Once more into my arid days like dew --
No rose that in a garden ever grew --
When I too long have looked upon your face --
And you as well must die, beloved dust --
Let you not say of me when I am old --
Oh, my beloved have you thought of this --
As to some lovely temple --
Cherish you then --
When you --
That love at length --
Love is not blind --
I know I am but summer --
I pray you if you love me --
Pity me not --
Sometimes when I am wearied suddenly --
Oh, oh, you will be sorry for that word --
Here is a wound that never will heal --
I shall go back again to the bleak shore --
Say what you will --
What's this of death --
I see so clearly now my similar years --
Your face is like a chamber --
The light combes back with Columbine --
Lord Archer, Death, whom sent you in your stead --
Loving you less than life --
I, being born a woman and distressed --
What lips my lips have kissed --
Still will I harvest beauty where it grows --
How healthily after feet upon the floor --
Euclid alone has looked on beauty bare --
Sonnets from an ungrafted tree. Life ... --
Grow not too high --
Not that it matters --
Country of hunchbacks --
Upon this marble bust that is not I --
For this your mother sweated in the cold --
Sweet sounds --
What thing is this that --
The beast that rends me in the sight of all --
No lack of cousel from the shrewd and wise --
Nay, learned doctor, these fine leeches fresh --
Of all that ever in extreme disease --
Since I cannot persuade you from this mood --
Nigh is my sister --
Yet in an hour to come --
When you are dead --
Strange thing that I --
Not in a silver casket cool with pearls --
Olympian gods --
I said --
Epitaph for the race of man --
Those hours when happy hours were my estate --
Not, to me, less lavish --
Tranquility at length --
And is indeed truth beauty --
to hold secure the province of pure art --
And if I die --
It is the fashion now to wave aside --
Admetus --
What chores these churls do put upon the great --
I will put chaous into fourteen lines --
Come home, victorious wounded --
Read history so learn your place in time --
Read history tus learn how small a space --
My words that once were virtuous and expressed --
Now sits the autumn cricket in the grass --
And must I then --
If I die solvent --
Grief that is grief and properly so hight --
Falicity of grief --
What rider spurs him from the darkening east.
